Gospel: Luke 9:43b–45
"The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands." (cf. Luke 9:44)
Today’s Gospel narrates to us the attitude of the disciples afraid to accept the prophesied suffering of the Christ.
Though suffering is inevitable, people would always find ways to avoid it. But these sufferings are the cross that we are entrusted to carry with a hope that salvation would surely come after.
Let us have the courage to carry the cross of our humanity and have hope for the goodness that it will bring in our life.
